The estate of the late Penn State coach Joe Paterno and several university trustees and former players are suing the NCAA over the landmark sanctions against the university for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
The Paterno family's attorney, Wick Sollers, told Bob Costas on the NBC Sports Network's ''Costas Tonight'' show aired Wednesday that former coaches and faculty members are part of the suit. Excerpts from Costas' interviews with Sollers and other representatives for the family were provided by the network.
According to NBC Sports Network, Sollers said NCAA president Mark Emmert and Oregon State president Edward Ray - who was chair of the NCAA's executive committee - are also named in the planned litigation. The lawsuit also takes issue with the NCAA's use of former FBI director Louis Freeh's scathing findings for the university on the scandal in levying the strict sanctions last July.
Among the penalties were a four-year bowl ban, steep scholarship cuts, and a $60 million fine. The NCAA also vacated 111 wins from Paterno's record, meaning he would no longer hold the title of major college football's winningest coach.
